Happy Christmas and link gifts

Hej hej,

zunächst einmal wünsche ich allen Frohe Weihnachten!
first of all I want to wish everyone a Happy Christmas! I hope you'll enjoy the food and the nice presents today! ;)

But now for the Christmas link exchange. Unfortunately no one signed up on my blog so I will just feature the blogs where I signed up. :)

First we have Dee, from the blog Deelusions of Grandeur
I know Dee since some years now via Rachelshaven, but we also talk now and then. While I don't think I'm the right person to have a creative talk about caps with, I try to say something about a cap I like by telling how it appears to me.
Dee's caps often have a relatively short text to go with a picture as it can be seen in the example I picked.

I received many caps from Dee already and the text (besides slang words and sayings I don't know as a non-native speaker of English) never has been a problem for me. She can tell a story so well that you can imagine the rest ... there's never a question left. Often the picture also helps since they are almost always chosen perfectly for the cap. Dee never only uses a "plain picture of some woman", there's always something you can discover and you see she thought about it fitting the story or vice versa. :)
Also it's cool that she updates her blog quiet frequently and sets up interesting discussions together with a cap.
So yes, her blog is worth it stopping by. :)

Then I want to feature Caitlyn, from the blog Caitlyn's masks.
I picked a cap that's pretty young and still on the front page. Just as all the caps I read and enjoyed on her blog so far, this one shows Caitlyn really thought about a good story to fit a wonderful high quality picture. Not only did I choose this cap because it's about the Great Shift universe (people who know me, know that I love it ;) ), no, it's because Caitlyn found a completely new approach to this universe.

It's not only a plain description of the event and who switched with which body, the focus is not really on the Great Shift but on a single woman. And there it's not only about the new boobs etc, but the whole new person and this is great.
I've had some cap trades with Caitlyn already and I'm always looking forward for a cap from her since I know it will be a very good one with many thoughts in them to make me like it - which I always did so far.
I can't deny that I sometimes think my caps look pretty ugly compared to hers and my stories also never really stand out, but I'm not jealous or so in a negative way, it just makes clear that if you want to see caps of high quality (text and pictures) in a very organized and clean blog, I can recommend her blog. :)
Post Scriptum: My blog header is also created by Caitlyn, thanks for that again. :)

Now something on my own blog:
I know I haven't been posting much during the last 2 months, but I'll try to change that. It's really cool to know (from previous comments) that there are people that really like my caps and stop by. I really want to give them more caps, but besides working alot I wanted to spend time with my girlfriend and friends, so there wasn't much time left. This should change as I have some vacations in January. :)

Have a good day with alot of presents!



  1. Merry Christmas Martha!

    Thank you for the kind writeup! I'd say we're equally (non negatively) jealous of each other's work as I love reading your caps!

  2. Slang and swear words should always be among the first things a non-native speaker should learn! Thanks for listing us, even though no one signed up here!
